On April 2, 2012, while the museum was closed to the public, we got together to assemble the “Traces” exhibit. Since most of the items came from storage, it was our first time to see them in person. There were some surprises. Some things, like the penicillin samples, were much smaller than expected. Others, like the recording voltmeter, were much larger. We settled on the layout for the three cases. We also made a list of supports/mounts needed to display the artifacts in the best way possible. Label sizes were defined and fun was had by all. Hopefully this will pay off when we set up the exhibit in its final form!
